You have to distribute first.
I got 1+5x-40≤2-(x+5)
Okay now distribute on the other side.
._. Doesn't 2 have to be by the parentheses for me to distribute?
You distribute the negative. So negative times x becomes -x
Do you get it?
So would that be 1+5x-40≤2-x+5?
It would be negative 5 since you're multiplying by a negative
Okay, so 1+5-40≤2-x-5...
Yes. Now combine like terms.
How do I do that if both X's are on opposite sides? ._. I apologize, I'm really bad in math.
It's fine. On the right side you can combine the 2 and -5
What did you get?
Now on the left side you can combine 1 and -40
You're trying to get x by itself so you have to add x to both sides
Good. Now you add 39 to both sides.
Yes! Now to get x by itself you divide both sides by 6
Ahhhh (: thank you so much!
Yes! You're welcome. :)
